Hand Soldering Chip Capacitors

Among the most common reasons multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) fail is improper hand soldering to printed circuit boards. Typically, one or more hairline cracks develop in the ceramic, defects that may even have an imperceptible effect on initial performance, but that manifest with time, circuit board flexure, or temperature excursions. Herein are a few tips, suggestions, and caveats to be aware of in performing a reliable hand soldering attachment.

Broadband Capacitors

There are a number of circuits that require coupling RF signals or bypassing them to ground while blocking DC over extraordinarily large RF bandwidths. The applications for which they are intended typically require small, surface-mountable (SMT) units with low insertion losses, reflections, and impedances across RF frequencies extending from the tens of KHz to the tens of GHz, and temperatures typically ranging from -55 to +85 0C. This note focuses on a particular implementation of these devices.
